Shout® it Out!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Triad Retail Media for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I hate stains.  The worst thing is pulling something out of the dryer only to find a stain, because by that time there's pretty much nothing I can do about it.  I've been known to holler, "Why didn't you tell me you got something on your shirt?" - to nobody but the empty laundry room.  I mean, sure I could go over every single item of clothing in the laundry looking for stains, but why should I have to?  Everybody is old enough to take care of their own stains now - or at least let me know that he got something on his shirt or his pants so I can treat it with Shout® Trigger before I throw it into the washer.  (Well, except for Jason, and his laundry isn't my responsibility.)

I don't have kids playing outside getting dirty or getting messy creating art projects, but I have a husband who occasionally drops food on his shirt or brushes up against something and gets something on his pants.  And I spend a lot of time in the kitchen - some days it seems I'm splattering things on my shirt all day long.  If these stains don't get treated, they're there forever.
Several years ago I started keeping Shout® Advanced Ultra Concentrated Gel in the bathroom by the clothes hamper.  That way it's handy for me or Jeffrey to treat our own clothes before we even throw them into the laundry.  It's great, because clothes can be treated even a week ahead of time, so I don't have to rush to do a load of laundry.  I keep the Shout® Trigger downstairs on the washer to treat anything I notice that has slipped through - or that I've been told about.  The directions say to completely cover the stain and rub it in to penetrate the stain, then let sit for 1-5 minutes before washing.  For tough greasy stains or set-in stains it says to let sit overnight or longer, so the Shout® Trigger might work just as well by the laundry hamper.  I keep thinking that I need to send some Shout® to college with Cory - probably the gel - because he does get dirty working in the scene shop and occasionally gets paint on his jeans, and who knows when he gets around to doing laundry, unless he comes home.

I have tried other stain removers, but I keep going back to Shout®.  It's easy to use, and it works - as long as I know I need to use it.  What makes it better than the others?  It must be the Triple-Acting Formula - it Clings, Penetrates, and Lifts away stains.  It comes with a Convenient trigger dispenser, is Safe for all colorfast washables, and it Works in all water temperatures.  I'm not sure how people used to treat stains, but I'm happy for conveniences like this.

Shout® Trigger and the rest of the Shout® stain solutions are available at Walmart.
